Adopting phase-shifting technique in moire topography provides many advantages in measuring complex surface profiles with varying reflectance. However, still the so- called 2(pi) -ambiguity problem remains, which limits the maximum measurable step height difference between two neighboring sample points to be less than half the equivalent wavelength of moire fringes. To cope with the problem in this investigation, a two-wavelength scheme of projection moire topography is proposed along with necessary hardware design considerations. Test results prove that the proposed scheme is capable of finding absolute fringe orders automatically, so that the 2(pi) -ambiguity problem can be effectively overcome so as to treat large step discontinuities in measured surfaces.
